  1. Even with limited weapons, I figure Ripley or Dutch could do this on there own. Frankly I could see Dutch building an arsenal of make shift weapons and straight up hunting the horror team.
  2. Moffat said in Dr. Who Magazine( issue 482) in 2015. When speaking about the New Adventure novels that they exist in a separate continuity from the show. Also once again because the BBC doesn't own the right certain concepts and characters out right. Stories that share those characters or concepts with Dr. Who can be made with out the consent or approval of the BBC who hold the primary rights to the universe and originated the franchise. In other words no not everything is Canon. Even if Dr. Who Canon is a bit messier than some other franchises. What is the source for one Dalek ship destroying the Earth? Here is the battle in question. We see Dalek weapons impact with in a few meters of people and the effect is not instant vaporization. Instead Dalek energy weapons toss them around, like a Hollywood grenade. The length of the time war is not going to change the effect of those weapons. Weapons that broke through Time Lord defences and are wrecking a Time Lord city. Again when they attack Earth they do very little environmental damage And don't have the power to resist getting sucked into portal while a person can resist doing so by holding on tight. Remember the Daleks are empire that brought the Time Lords to there knees. Once again for all the big talk when we see these races in action. They tend to be underwhelming. So we are agreed than. That the Time Lords mental and emotional instability will make them ripe for indoctrination. Sure Time Lords can effect elements and technology native to there universe. That doesn't mean anything when dealing with franchises that operate on different mechanics. Nope the Time Lords can't go back and erase the Reapers. This is a simultaneous invasion of Earth. Going back in time before the Reapers arrived or attacking them before they arrive. Would not be simultaneous. It would also remove the Time Lords from the battlefield. Which could be considered a loss in itself. Also depending on which variation of time travel is in play. Removing the Reapers from the timeline may simply create a separate timeline where they win, but still lost in the original primary time line. Remember this is an artificial scenario with set parameters. That dictate that the invasion has to be simultaneous and the first to effectively take the planet wins, regardless of whether the Time Lords can call a mulligan and try again.
  3. The survivor slot specified live action characters. So we are dealing with Dredd from either the Stallone or Urban movie and any tie in material produced for the those iterations. I don't recall most of your examples from either film. Though they could be from tie in comics or the like. I guess my question is which movie are we using for Dredd?
  4. I'm not so sure the Time Lords take this. First we have to establish what is real for them as Dr. Who Canon is a bit muddled.n There are some statements that suggest that the novels don't share continuity with the tv show.bwe also have some non-tv material that has more or less been ignored or out right contradicted by the tv show itself. On top of that the right to some elements that have been in the show are no longer held by the BBC, so there canonicity is questionable. Further much of what we "know" about the Time Lords is hearsay and legend. The Doctor tells us something, but we see no visual evidence of it and it's not like the Doctor is always honest or straight forward. Truth is the few actual glimpses. Of the Time Lord/Dalek War we see are straight forward generic space combat with pew pew lasers and fairly mundane area effects. Such as broken masonry and people knocked over. Daleks have been slowed down by fairly conventional earth militaries and you know stairs:) Point is for all there big talk when we see the Time Lords and there peers fight. They are not rerouting black holes and freezing time, they are shooting Lazer guns at each other, like everybody else. Further I see no reason why Indoctrination shouldn't work. Pretty much every Time Lord we've ever met has been emotionally and mentally unstable to begin with. Whether they are dealing with PTSD or are narsessistic. There own pride and arrogance are often there undoing. Also even if we assume they are going to be lobbing time torpedoes or what have you around. They still have to get past the Reapers Kinetic Barriers. They are as far as I can tell physical objects with kinetic mass/energy I see no reason to assume they won't bounce off Reaper shields. However even if they work. Element Zero/Mass Effect fields allow for FTL travel as such they are already bending space and time. So they may well be able to simply fly out of the time bubble created by the afore mentioned torpedoes. Biotic using the base concepts allows for teleportation, through barriers. It's seems likely that the same could happen if a ship activated it's ftl drive inside a time bubble. The Time Lords home universe doesn't have Element Zero. So there is no reason to assume there temporal control extends to it. Infact it can't as it doesn't exist for the. In other words Reapers have a very real chance of winning this encounter.
  5. Yeah Carol has had a rough season. This match is no better for her. I just don't see her taking down the Big Blue Boy Scout.
  6. First off once again we know from the fact that the Bat Family has out performed some of those "applicants". That, they are not necessarily stronger or smarter than humans. Sure the Bat Family is made up of exceptional people, but you wanna know who else is also exceptional both in terms of physical and intellectual prowess. Indiana Jones that's who. Secondly even if he doesn't make the cut for the military, he is still likely to make the cut for gladiatorial or domestic work. Which again would allow him to survive the 24 hours, assuming he even get through selection in less then 24 hours. Here https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.supermanhomepage.com/new-details-on-warworld-characters-as-action-comics-1036-is-delayed/amp/ It says they have almost nothing in common under the hood and that some of them are in fact earth cars. Again this strongly suggests they changed out the power plant, but kept the rest of the aesthetic. Jones may be a hero, but he is smart enough and has seen enough war and suffering. To know when he can help and when he can't. He is going to know he can't over throw a planet in a day.
  7. I forget it wasn't ending today too. Warworld is making selections based on what "applicants" they have on hand, not on what might be in the galaxy. If they were doing it your way, there would be no warriors on Warworld below the level of Kryptonians and there clearly are. The intelligence selection is going to work the same way and Indy has more raw intelligence than most that make there way to Warworld. Scarred face beat up clothing. Aside from skin tone he looks like everyone in that picture. Well he has his trade market half cocked grin, but that only adds to the bad-ass factor. In the article the author says that some of the vehicles came from earth and that the others are different under the hood. Again he is talking out power supply etc. Steer wheels/shifter etc while inside the cab are visible from outside it. They are part of the exterior of the vehicle, when compared to what under the hood. What I'm saying is Jones is roughly on par with members of the Bat Family, both physically and mentally and has faced and defeated similar foes. The Bat Family does it through gadgets/tech Jones does it through improvisation etc, but the results are the same. Indiana also carries guns and is willing to use them to lethal effect, something the Bat Family doesn't generally do. Why the weird caveat about, if we accept Jones's feats than. Hun'Ya is an alien champion used to conquer worlds, via single combat in DC. He lost to a "regular" human, just like a lot of the denizens of Warworld. I didn't write that's just the way it is.
  8. We could do another round of 5v5. With the slots/characters competing in random matches/scenarios/stipulations from the jack of all trades slot a few drafts ago.
  9. What do you think those physical/intellectual chops are? Because what we see on Warworld is individuals who do not share Indy's intellectual ability and who can physically be put down by human level opponents. Indiana Jones is not rugged and scarred? Your reaching man. Indy is the epitome of rugged adventure hero. A cars controls, while inside the cab are still on the exterior of the vehicle compared to the engine/transmission. If you are going for a car aesthetic you are not gonna operate via touch screen. Also with two arms and legs there are only so many ways your going to set up controls to drive. What did the Bat Family bring, cause it looked like they largely had there regular gear. Gear they use to take down there regular enemies. Opponents that Indy can take down with wit and a whip. There were enough non-Justice League level ones that the Bat Family never faced a stray overly powerful one. Also the Bat Family had mission, places to go. Jones doesn't he can run away from and avoid conflict. The touch of added variation that Batman may have seen, isn't going to make huge difference on Warworld. It's stuff like time travel. Which isn't really pertinent to post apocalyptic survival. Also weird way to say Indiana Jones doesn't have the same experience as Batman. Wording wise it's seems like you're trying to suggest Indy's feats shouldn't count or aren't Canon. Hun'Ya's people had challenged the champions of other worlds before, not just rolled in with there armada. Clearly Dr. Jones fit into some of those criteria. And again even if he didn't there a good chance selection/transport takes longer than a day.
  10. First off happy New Year, I hope you had a good one. Secondly I may not go point by point, but here it goes. If Brainiac Warworld is going to auto kill any organic life than it's gonna be DQ from the location slot. So this has to be Mongul's. There are hundreds of different kinds of aliens on Warworld. Still a lot of them mostly human shaped, Jones is not gonna stick out. Those Warworld cars were designed to mimic cars even if they are not powers by internal combustion engines. Also as I've pointed out Indy has adapted to alien tech before. My point about Batman/Jason Todd/Barbara Gordon was that they are human level combatants that survived on Warworld and managed to fight the Warzone/inhabitants of Warworld in spite of the fact that you keep insisting that said inhabitants are way more powerful than humans. As to experience, really the only thing that I can think of that Batman has done that Jones doesn't have experience with is maybe time travel. And I don't think Bruce used time travel to survive Warworld. So once again multiple humans have survived on and battles the forces of Warworld. That was the point I was making. Also once again no feats for the aliens that make the cut. Hun'Ya's people traveled around challenging worlds and Hun'Ya was specifically designed to be the best. Yet he was bested by a human. In "Crystal Skull" Indy translated a language he did know with in a day. Granted he did so based on languages he did know, but it does indicate his ability to learn. Also like you said we don't know how long it takes to process and once again even if he is processed in a day, they still have to get around to killing him. Which again is not normally what Warworld is after, they want an army and a slave labor force. Oh and even if they would prefer Luther to Jones, Luther is not there and they are sorting what specimens they have on hand.
  11. The Witch King can be killed by anyone with the appropriate weapon or power. His "..doom.." being "..not by the hand of man.." was a prophecy regarding how he would die, not protective spell. So out of universe or in AUs created by crossovers it's not going to matter.
  12. Warworld is still huge, with a planet's population of inhabitants. Even if they can pinpoint him, why would they he is one random guy in a population of millions. This is also where Jones education in archeology, anthropology, and linguistics. Come into play. He learns culture for a living and is something of a polyglot. He is going to learn the culture and the language in no time flat. Then blend in and disappear. What's so different about there transportation. It seems to largely be made up of tracked vehicles and aircraft. Hell they've got some cars. https://www.supermanhomepage.com/new-details-on-warworld-characters-as-action-comics-1036-is-delayed/amp/ Indy has operated cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, submarines, trains, planes, hot air balloons etc. He once said if it's got wheels he can drive it, but he has also proven it's doesn't need wheels for him to figure it out. Thanks for the context and pointing out that Barbara Gordon and Jason Todd also survived on Warworld. Yes they had members of the Justice League/Superman family with them, but they weren't locked in Nth metal playpens, with Kryptonian babysitters the whole time. They were humans that mixed it up with the armies of Warworld and survived. Does Batman have more varied experience then Indy? Maybe he's done a couple more things, but I'm not sure any of it would be pertinent to surviving Warworld. What are Bruce's resources gonna do for him on Warworld. He's there with what he can carry. The Netherworld was actively unstable and targeting him. The same is not likely to be the case for Warworld. For clarification Jones did go to Xibalba. There is just some dispute about whether the one he went is the one from myth. It was however a barren volcanic waste land that appeared under a dense jungle, though also wasn't exactly a cave. So something supernatural was going on. Just getting to the portal to the Netherworld involves traverse a giant tomb out to kill you. https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Emperor's_Tomb Similarly he survived Nub's Tomb while collecting the pieces to the Infernal Machine. This is the tomb guarded by robots. https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Nub's_Tomb Dr. Jones has also traveled to and survived the destruction of Atlantis. While there he figured Atlantean technology. This is important because Atlantean tech comes from the Horned Being that visited Atlantis from the sky. In other words space fairing Aliens. Atlantis https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Atlantis Horned Beings https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Horned_beings Indy rebuilding Atlantean tech https://gfycat.com/essentiallightheartedcuscus And for good measure building an Orichalum Detector out of found objects. https://gfycat.com/accuratejampackedhomalocephale Don't think the black mercy flower or mind control is going to work. Indy can resist telepathic probing https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Irina_Spalko He can also see through illusion/magic https://m.imgur.com/VeC9xTt https://m.imgur.com/7ZDwKXz And if all else fails Jones still has his "spirit animal" https://m.imgur.com/a/fTWqcCU https://m.imgur.com/7pnLJku https://m.imgur.com/a/KnqYYMv https://m.imgur.com/vLp4qYf https://m.imgur.com/rYnR6ly https://m.imgur.com/HDY1sZ5 To center and guide him. I don't mean to be that guy, but those "best specimens from around the cosmos" don't really have any feats of there own. Infact we know from the comics that human level opponents like Batman, Redwood, and Batgirl can take them down. We have other examples from DC Comics as well where alien champions are taken down by human fighters. https://www.google.com/search?q=hun'ya+vs+muhammad+ali&client=ms-android-motorola-rvo3&prmd=vinx&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiUlf2XiY_1AhVNGTQIHcINDRgQ_AUoAnoECAIQAg&biw=412&bih=780&dpr=1.75#imgrc=A00h0oS_5iRBBM https://www.google.com/search?q=hun'ya+vs+muhammad+ali&client=ms-android-motorola-rvo3&prmd=vinx&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiUlf2XiY_1AhVNGTQIHcINDRgQ_AUoAnoECAIQAg&biw=412&bih=780&dpr=1.75#imgrc=GHcD9rkp4lRB_M Sure Hun'Ya loses to Ali. Still all this combined suggests that simply being the best/strongest of an alien race, doesn't put you leagues above humans. Also let's look at Warworld select process https://www.google.com/search?q=warworld+respect+thread&client=ms-android-motorola-rvo3&prmd=isnxv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiBgJach4_1AhW8HzQIHWyLBOsQ_AUoAXoECAIQAQ&biw=412&bih=780&dpr=1.75#imgrc=B0J8u-oHFQ6F8M First off this shows us that they take prisoners and then said prisoners are processed. With the scope we are dealing with Indy could get captured and still be waiting for selection by the time his 24 hours ends. Even if he is evaluated, he is a trained spy who has been captured before. He can play along and as stated above Warworld is not just looking for muscle, but also the smarts and Dr. Jones has that. Along with physical abilities on par with other members of the citizenry. Heck even if he is sorted into the gladiatorial pool or domestic service. He is unlikely to die right away. Let's break this down First. Warworld has to care enough about Indy to find him. Then they have to find him. Then capture him. Then process him. Then send him where he needs to go. Then which ever caste/area he ends up in needs to get around to killing him. ( Note most recruits aren't killed right away. Warworld prefers to use them for slave labor etc.) And all of this has to happen in a single day. For all it's lethality, Warworld is still has a government, it has bureaucracy, red tape, chain of command, standard operating procedure etc. Indy on the other hand is a single individual in a huge population. Allowed to move freely and do as he sees fit.
  13. Yep, Indiana Jones Canon works the way Star Wars Canon use to work. That is to say unless it's expressly stated that it's not Canon. It is Canon.
  14. I'll have to brush up on Carol, the last comic I read with her. She was slowed down by Frank Castle in the WarMachine armor, granted it's Punisher in Iron-Man lite armor, and probably a low showing. Still out side of the MCU Danvers is never treated as the big gun In her universe. The way Kent is in his.
  15. Don't turn in your Indy fanboy card. Just update it for premium membership. Truth that's probably small scale stuff compared to the time Indy traveled to a God's personal pocket dimension, a pocket dimension poisonous to humans, and proceeded to take out said God. The God https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Marduk The pocket dimension https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Aetherium
  16. Warworld is vast, it's basically a planet. There is a good chance that any survivor dropped there could spend a day holed up. Find a corner of some huge castle or construct and ride it out and contrary to popular belief Dr. Jones is just fine with hiding and sneaking. Infact half the time he has to be drug in to adventure and once there does his best to avoid confrontation. Also while Warworld tends to be a Superman setting. Batman has also survived stays on it and battling it's citizenry. Batman who for all his skill and accolades is still human. Now to Jones surviving. This is not Indy's first experience with a combat environment. He fought in both World Wars. Including surviving The Battle of the Somme, one of the deadliest battles in human history. He also had war declared on him by Nazi Germany and survived. While inside there territory. He has also traveled too and survived in a couple versions of hell. https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Netherworld https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Xibalbá Jones also has a good deal of experience with superhuman and supernatural opponents. Such as... Cyborgs https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Helmut_von_Mephisto Robots https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Robot_Guardian Zombies https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Zombie Dragons https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Dragon Ice monsters https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Ice_Guardian https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Ice_Creature Lava monsters https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Lava_Guardian Giants https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Shintay https://m.imgur.com/Ch7U9G5 https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Homonculus Giant octopus https://m.imgur.com/a/RBfSzzM And in every case through a combination of brain, brawn, skill, and gear Indy came out on top. So as surprising as it may be I don't think there is much on Warworld that Dr. Jones hasn't survived in the past. As mentioned earlier tough/skilled humans have survived on Warworld before. Dr. Jones is just that. As far as skill goes he is not only tournament winning boxer https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Boxing_medal , But also has wins over three Olympic Gold Medalist boxers Biff https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Biff_(German) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CsaSJYluunA Fritz ( guard ) https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Fritz_(guard) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iug0xAA7wCM Fritz ( ticket taker ) https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Fritz_(ticket_taker) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BggPfjukV0w Physically he is able to smash through stone/brick walls. https://m.imgur.com/a/canr6UL Send people flying with his blows. https://gfycat.com/unknownhardtofindgrizzlybear Pull giant stone blocks https://gfycat.com/complexsilvercottontail Is fast enough to dodge/block guns shots, arrows, thrown weapons. https://m.imgur.com/a/ypTXU5N https://m.imgur.com/a/G8Ahslg https://m.imgur.com/a/qkp9nei https://gfycat.com/obesehighlark https://m.imgur.com/eHsz4xr https://m.imgur.com/S9xLHLC Tough enough to get smacked around by a bears and bull. https://m.imgur.com/a/411Hha9 https://m.imgur.com/BaHtiGs And agile enough to pull off stuff like this. https://gfycat.com/fearlesscriminaldragonfly https://m.imgur.com/nINWfPh https://www.reddit.com/r/RTvideos/comments/cuoplm/indiana_jones_and_the_chinese_pirates/ https://gfycat.com/plaintivebigguineafowl As well as all the ancient ruin escaping shenanigans he is best known for. In other words if a human that is not Batman is going to survive Warworld it's Indiana Jones.
  17. Riddick also has a mental component from the years of being hardened by prison etc. He does the stair down animals thing to. I also wonder how Furyian physiology might factor in.
  18. Maybe a couple, but they are going to be facing a virtual wall of lead. From both targeted and suppressive fire. Even if they get through it they can't pick up or damage armored vehicles.
  19. Luck, That is her superpower after all and Eddie/Venom are pretty unlucky to begin with.
  20. Tenga's only ever really slow the Rangers down when the significantly outnumber them and even then it's only briefly. The Tenga's also tend to retreat quickly. They get knock around a bit and fly away. Also while Power Rangers have at times demonstrated considerable striking power. There battles with the Tenga generally result in little to no environmental damage. As in nobody is smashed through walls or trees etc. Still these attacks drop the Tenga and cause them to flee. Bikers on the other hand will be bringing military grade weapons. Things like Rockets, grenades, IEDs, hell maybe even a cannon etc. The kind of weapons that bring down buildings and destroy tanks. Examples. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_Copenhagen_rocket_attack https://www.google.com/amp/s/news.yahoo.com/amphtml/fbi-says-gang-infiltrators-stealing-military-weapons-sale-234229990.html https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rt.com/news/430585-amsterdam-anti-tank-weapon/amp/ https://www.google.com/amp/s/nationalpost.com/news/canada/rival-outlaw-biker-clubs-at-heart-of-ontario-police-raids-that-found-boxes-of-grenades-guns-drugs/wcm/7fb92b01-e7e8-4559-a3e5-3b4d071264b0/amp/ https://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/17/nyregion/brooklyn-motorcycle-gang-members-arrested-on-weapons-charges.html Then there are these guys who have tanks and armored vehicles. So even with out Morphers and sticking to only real life bikers gangs. They still drastically out gun the Tenga Warriors. In other words this is gonna turn into a turkey shoot fast. Granted bikers are dangerous up close as shown here. Where they fight a force of special forces soldiers that has double there manpower and is better armed. Still the bikers win. Again this is sticking to real world stuff. If I brought in biker gangs from movies, comics, anime etc. Things get even worse for the Tenga.
  21. Going to remind folks once again, the fact that Gaston failed once at this just gives him more experience, knowledge, and motivation. Think about anything you've ever tried to do. It tends to get easier the more you do it and the more you learn about it. Gaston can see where he failed the first time, and let's be clear he almost succeeded ( with out the advantage of hindsight ), and tweak the small things that went wrong.
  22. People are going to want to point out that Gaston has already failed at this. However what that actually means is that he has the advantage. In that he knows the players and he knows the game. He has a second shot at this and even more motivation, not to fail. This along with inherently being known to and largely loved by the locals means Gaston starts several steps ahead of Xanatos. Who has to start from the beginning. Learn the who's, when's, where's, why's, and how's. Then form a plan and do all of that before Gaston can pull off a slightly modified version of his original plan.
  23. Tenga warriors may have the physical advantage one on one. However they are seriously outgunned as bikers will be bringing guns, grenades, rocket launchers, bombs etc.
  24. Which examples do you think are being ignored? I will address them if I can. While I have contended that he is superior to those MK characters in question. I did so in response to the comparisons made to Erron Black. So perhaps you'd like to expand on the comparison bey Hex and Black. Besides that they both carry guns.
  25. Hera pursued vendettas against children for the sins of their father. Even if Hera appeals to the Hobbit women. Hobbit society is patriarchal and women flocked to Cuchulain, so even this might not be an in for Hera. Cuchulain is a known as a warrior god, but he is also known as a god of oaths, law, and craftsmen. Those traits are going to appeal to Hobbits. Cuchulain is also known for his commitment to sharing meals. Food is huge part of Hobbit culture. Also Tolkien based the people's of Middle Earth on the pre-Christian groups of northern Europe like the Gauls, Celts,, Dames, and Norse. So Cuchulain is going to be closer to the Hobbits in terms of culture. From food, to clothes, to language, and religion. Hera is going to be foreign in both values and style. Cuchulain values similar things. He could have walked out of the pages of Tolkien novel. That familiarity/kinship is going to give him a real edge. Remember even if the Hobbits are generally peaceful themselves, they are not morally opposed to war and have honoured war heroes in there folk tradition. Not to mention again there love and reverence for the Rangers who themselves are warriors.
